Air cargo: Soaring Shanghai-Europe air freight prices buck downward trend

There was a sharp increase in demand on routes out of Shanghai to Europe in September. Photo credit: Shutterstock.com. Air cargo rates from Shanghai to Europe soared in September, going against the trend of falling prices out of Asia as Pudong International Airport captured a greater share of a market looking to avoid protest-hit Hong Kong. The rate on the Shanghai-Europe trade lane increased 10.45 percent in September, according to Peter Stallion, an analyst at Freight Investor Services (FIS). Rates on the route were largely flat in the run-up to September. Shanghai is China’s busiest airport by cargo volume, and the world’s third-busiest air freight hub, handling 4 million tons in 2018. Stallion said FIS data showed a clear transfer of cargo volumes from Hong Kong to Shanghai and greater China due to a combination of factors, including the political strife in Hong Kong, falling volume, and excess capacity. This has caused rates out of Hong Kong to fall steadily, while Shanghai lanes have posted a slow but steady climb. Shanghai to Europe rates jumped 4.74 percent in the past week. The reason can be seen in cargo statistics from Hong Kong International Airport for August, the l...

No single aversion tool or method of bird or wildlife control will work long-term, particularly if

No single aversion tool or method of bird or wildlife control will work long-term, particularly if the habitat is otherwise appealing and population pressures are high. The best outcomes are achieved when short-term scare tactics are followed up with habitat and behavior modification. Residents of U.S. cities and suburbs are diverse in just about every way you can imagine, including race, ethnicity, income, education, political affiliation, family structure and species. Yes, you read that correctly. Humans and birds and wildlife are living side-by-side in greater numbers than ever before; often obliviously, usually harmoniously. But clashes do occur over noise, property damage, theft, trespassing — all the usual culprits. Managing human-wildlife conflict offers a new income stream opportunity for pest control businesses, as many have recognized, but there are challenges, too. The traditional focus of the pest control industry has been on critters with a decided lack of charisma. Think cockroaches, termites, bed bugs, ants and other spineless creatures. Mice and rats, too, of course, but these mammals evoke little sympathy from paying customers thanks to some sticky relationship ...

As we continue to exit the long shadow of the global financial crisis, questions remain about

As we continue to exit the long shadow of the global financial crisis, questions remain about unconventional monetary policies. This will affect the U.S. Federal Reserve first, with other major central banks (eventually) following. Specifically, what will the terminal balance sheet look like? Will central banks go back to using the policy rate (PR) as the only tool with no quantitative easing (QE) and no excess bank reserves (1)? Or will QE–and larger balance sheets–be a permanent fixture of the landscape? How will central banks make that decision? The Fed’s precrisis balance sheet had liabilities consisting of cash in circulation and a small amount of bank reserves needed for the smooth functioning of the interbank market (2). There were no excess reserves. The central bank supplied only the amount of reserves necessary to achieve its target federal funds rate, which was the sole instrument used by the central bank to achieve its policy objectives (3). The size of the balance sheet was around $900 billion (see table 1). The Fed’s maximum post-crisis balance-sheet size reached about $4.5 trillion. How did this quintupling of the balance sheet happen? Aft...

An overlooked piece of the solar dynamo puzzle: Researchers demonstrate particular form of magnetic instability — ScienceDaily

A previously unobserved mechanism is at work in the Sun’s rotating plasma: a magnetic instability, which scientists had thought was physically impossible under these conditions. The effect might even play a crucial role in the formation of the Sun’s magnetic field, say researchers from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), the University of Leeds and the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) in the journal Physical Review Fluids. Just like an enormous dynamo, the sun’s magnetic field is generated by electric currents. In order to better understand this self-reinforcing mechanism, researchers must elucidate the processes and flows in the solar plasma. Differing rotation speeds in different regions and complex flows in the sun’s interior combine to generate the magnetic field. In the process, unusual magnetic effects can occur — like this newly discovered magnetic instability. Researchers have coined the term “Super HMRI” for this recently observed special case of magnetorotational instability (MRI). It is a magnetic mechanism that causes the rotating, electroconductive fluids and gases in a magnetic field to become unsta...

ASF and feed safety: An animal nutrition company’s perspective

Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. By Peter Fidder, director of Quality Affairs, Trouw Nutrition Walk around any hog show or pork event and you can tell a lot about the state of the industry by asking attendees one simple question: “What issue is keeping you awake at night?” From disease threats to trade and regulatory policies, there are many issues contributing to lost sleep in 2019. Among hog farmers in North America, foreign animal disease and biosecurity measures to prevent such disease from infiltrating herds is a leading concern. Anxiety is particularly high about the damage that could be inflicted if African swine fever finds its way to North America’s shores. The cancellation of a signature pork event — World Pork Expo — signified the abundance of caution organizations such as the National Pork Producers Council are undertaking to prevent an outbreak of ASF in the Americas. Such a high level of concern is understandable given the potential risk a disease outbreak po...

How to take a break from alcohol so you’ll actually stick with it

It’s been a while since I quit drinking (a choice I made mostly because alcohol plus a panic disorder and clinical depression either don’t mix at all, or mix all too well), but I still feel awkward sometimes at bars, and experience the occasional craving after a crummy day. Generally, I feel more secure and happier without alcohol – largely because I recall that my times with alcohol weren’t always merry, and I feel my health has improved without it. But what if you want to take a break from or eliminate alcohol not because you have a drinking problem (in which case, mental health counseling and recovery programs like AA would be recommended), but because you’re concerned about the potential negative health effects? Or what if you just want to take a pause to reassess your relationship with alcohol? Or perhaps you’re abstaining just for the month as part of #SoberOctober or a diet plan like Whole30? Quitting can still be tough (if it weren’t, Sober October wouldn’t be offered up as a challenge). We compiled a list of mental health experts’ and registered dietitians’ tips for how the non-alcoholic can get started going sober. “When we are looking to change habits, including...

Official energy data from China have confirmed what climate scientists have feared. The world’s biggest coal

Official energy data from China have confirmed what climate scientists have feared. The world’s biggest coal user has boosted consumption for the second year in a row, posting the largest increase since 2013. In its annual communique released on Feb. 28, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) mixed good news with bad. Coal’s share of China’s primary energy mix dropped to 59 percent last year, down 1.4 percentage points from 2017 as renewable energy made gains, the NBS said. But coal consumption rose 1 percent, growing more than twice as fast as it did a year before. The smaller share and the larger volume are both possible because total energy use rose 3.3 percent, according to the agency’s preliminary estimate. The growth of total energy consumption was faster than the 2.9-percent pace of 2017 as the government pushed stimulus projects and bank lending in response to the economic slowdown. China’s gross domestic product rose 6.6 percent last year, down from the 6.8-percent pace recorded in 2017, slipping to the lowest level of growth since 1990. In 2017, coal consumption edged up 0.4 percent after three years of declines. That increase prompted w...
